Seller notes: some wear
Product Type: Vanity Sets Material: Enamel
Wonderful vintage travelling vanity set suitcase. 

Has its original mole skin outer cover with same initials of V.P.  as the case and inner case. 

This was probably owned by a lady who travelled as the outer case is pretty worn, this means the actual case is well preserved. 

The items inside are green enamel on silver plate or chrome, not sure. 

Comprises outer cover, large case with provision for a mirror in the lid interior but the mirror is missing, an interior tray case which lifts out and can be self contained as has a clasp or catch to close, with the tray out is an area underneath for small items of clothing etc. 

The contents of the vanity section comprise.... two bottles with enamel lids, a hair brush, clothes brush, one glass pot, another lid without a pot which needs replacing, a shoe horn, hand mirror, comb holder without comb, file and lastly a small leather oblong case. 

The case is covered in green leather, the interior also has green leather and silk lining. Holding straps inside are green leather.

Condition wise the outer cover has a few tears etc but still does the job, the case itself is pretty good with some surface damage to one side edge and minor scratches and scuffs mainly to handle area. The interior case is good with a broken leather handle to the top which could be repaired, the loop has gone. 

Comb holder has minor enamel chip loss at ends, no comb. 
Hand mirror enamel very good, beveled glass good.

File in used condition, no damage. Shoe horn minor plate wear through to brass at handle tip. 

Two glass bottles enamel loss to tops, glass ok. 

Large glass pot, enamel to lid good, glass good. Small pot same, other small pot glass base missing lid with enamel chipping.

Clothes brush chipping loss to enamel around edges mainly, hair brush has severe enamel loss, dropped a few times it seems !!

 One leather holder has no implement, was small what ever it was. 

Leather small box very good. Interior pretty good, some discolouration stains.
Case measures 20 x 13 inches. 

A charming set, not perfect by any means but very rare and interesting, I wonder who V.P. was ?
